Dorchester BID

The Business Plan was arrived at after an extensive consultation. Dorchester BID Directors and staff held over 100 face to face meetings with individual businesses. Via an interactive process the DBID website allowed business owners in the BID area not only to suggest projects but also to vote for their favourite projects every month a facility pioneered by and unique to the Dorchester BID. A series of meetings were held including a general public meeting to discuss possible projects followed by three themed public meetings and these were open to all businesses in the BID area and to the general public.

I attended 4 events, next year I will want to attend even more talks. 
A friend came to stay with us and she was equally impressed by the talks she attended.

I sip my Dorset tea and just wanted to say thanks so much for the invitation to the lit fest - I thoroughly enjoyed it...

All of us in the Hardy Society were very positive about 'our' first night and the subsequent events. I thought Tony's event with Rachel and Dinah worked very well with interesting conversations from the both of the women.

You and Paul must be very happy with the positive way Dorchester people are continuing to embrace the Festival, and in impressively increasing numbers. Congratulations to both of you.

Next year's dates are already in our diaries and we are looking forward to meeting up with you soon to discuss our involvement.

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.
